The Pouncey brothers are known as people who make their opinions very well-known. When Maurkice and Mike decided to speak on Tuesday however with CBS 4 in Miami, they probably said some things that they would love to take back about former teammate Mike Wallace.

Wallace’s name wasn’t brought up in the interview but it was clear that the brothers were talking about Wallace and the situation that got him traded by the Miami Dolphins to the Minnesota Vikings. Mike, who plays in Miami, added that “I think the offseason is a time to speak your mind. It takes 11 (players) and not 10 so I’m glad we moved on from that and I just can’t wait to see where we go from here.”
As the day went on Tuesday though, Wallace heard the comments and reacted in a way that was a bit shocking.
It was an odd reaction when basically the brothers called him out for not being a team player. Wallace will have some work to do when he gets to Minnesota to show what kind of player he is again. It would appear even if Wallace doesn’t want to admit it that the Pounceys aren’t happy with him.
